How to Plan a Trip to China
It may be daunting to plan a trip to China even if you have already experienced many travels abroad. If it is your first time to visit China, then here are some simple steps to help you in planning your trip.
The first thing to consider is the places where you want to go. You can go to Beijing, Xi’an, and Shanghai. Guilin, and Chengdu are other great places that you can also visit. Make sure that you go to places that will interest you. If you make your own research, you will be able to determine if the place is the one you want to go to. It is important also to determine the activities that can be done in these places.
In Beijing you will see both historical and modern places. You must see Beijing since it is home to China’s Great Wall and the Forbidden City.
If you have a knack for history then Xi’an is another great destination. It was here that China began as a nation. China’s first emperor ruled here. This is the place of the famous grand Terracotta Army, the Wild Big Goose Pagodas, and the Great Mosque.
The largest and showiest city of China in Shanghai. It has spectacular skyline with towering modern architecture. Hangzhou, Suzhou or Huangshan are water towns that you can tour.
If you want some picturesque scenery then you can visit Guilin where a Chinese minority lives. You can see many beautiful landscapes and you can escape from the city to relax here. You can cruise the Li River to Yangshuo. You can spend some days at the Longji Rice Terraces where you can find a minority culture. You will also experience their tiered fields and get to experience the minority tribes of Zhuang and Yao.
Visitng Chengdu will make you experience the giant pandas. Here you can also taste great cuisine like the Spicy Sichuan hotpot.
So, after picking your destination, decide how long you will stay. A week in China would be ideal if you don’t just want to scratch the surface of China.
You should know about the visa policy in China and the gateway cities. Beijing and Shanghai are the top gateway cities for international flights. Hong Kong is also a gateway city for entering China.
One of your considerations should be the best time to travel to China. Throughout the year it is ideal to visit China’s cultural and historical attraction. If you will do anything in these regions, seasons don’t affect it. For a China tour, the most comfortable and highly recommended times are during spring and autumn or from April to October.
